Bol Bol Has Near Perfect Night

All he needed was a chance. Now that Bol Bol has gotten it thanks to a healthy start to the season, he is taking his chance and running with it. Big time. The 7'2" dynamo for the Orlando Magic had a near-perfect night, going into overtime of their game with the Sacramento Kings shooting 9-for-9 from the floor, and finishing 10-of-11 for 23 points. And oh yes, the highlights were off the charts in entertainment. 

In addition to dropping 23 points, he grabbed seven rebounds and hit a couple of threes.  

The 22-year-old went into Saturday's game second in the NBA in block %, and top-10 in scoring efficiency and rebounding.

The only problem for Bol on this night was trying to handle De'Aaron Fox. The Kings guard refused to let his team lose. He tied it with a tremendous surge in the final minute of regulation, and scored nine points in OT including this insane shot at the buzzer.
